Hi Guys, I hope this is the right place to list these. If not let me know.

I was just doing up a lizardmen list and noticed a couple of things.

In the print out, where it lists the details of all the weapons, Javelins are listed as 8" range. In the Big book, Javelins are listed as 12".

Also in the latest Lizardmen FAQ, Horned ones are no longer count as a magic Item but are now a cavalry mount. Would it be possible to get it added underneath the cold ones on the character section, so their stats show up the same as a horned one. Also I should now be able to select one of these for all my heroes(if I wanted)

Again, I hope I've done this correctly as I don't want to annoy the excellent people who maintain these files
cheers
Matt

Regarding that last part; the FAQ does not make Horned Ones a simple mount option. It says they don't count as a magic item for rules purposes, not that they aren't bought from the magic items list or that they no longer cost "magic item points" or similar.

Fair point Mr Rose. What I am trying to get at, is that multiple characters should be able to select a horned one, given that the aren't magic items for rules purposes and therefore aren't affected by the rule that forbids duplicate magic items.

I'd also like the stats for my horned one to appear in the same manner as a regular cold one. Of course I could be wrong on all counts

No, they are magic items. What it means by 'not counted as for rules purposes' is if you have an item that nullifies other magic items, the Horned One would not be affected by this. All other rules still apply.

As a follow-up to the Horned One bug already reported, it should grant the rider an armor save but does not. Added to a scar-vet it would grant a final save of 3+, oldblood ends with a 2+, and a skink would get a 5+.

I've also found that...
1) Slaan Mage Priests are unable to add magic weapons, but they should be able to (they are restricted from armor; not weapons).

2) You list Chameleon Skinks as being able to deploy within 12" of an enemy, but this is no longer the case.

3) Shields are shown to grant a 6+ ward save even when the character has a magic weapon (single or paired) or an extra hand weapon

Hi,

I've just spent 15 minutes updating the descriptions for the Lizardmen.dat to FAQ 1.4. Do you want a copy?

I noticed a slight issue with magic armor; the 8th edition book allows characters to take both a magic shield and some other (non shield) form of magic armor. Doing this in the current army builder file causes a "Too many magic items worn" error.

Also, this may have been mentioned before but the last reply here was several months back - the Horned One should add to the character's armor save in the same manner that the Cold One does.
Thanks for your hard work!

Gents,

Thanks for your work on this - I do believe that the restriction against wizards wielding magical weapons has been lifted in this ruleset though. Currently I cannot give my slann a magic weapon. And I believe this is something i desire and my enemies fear

Fixed.

If you can keep your head while all about you are loosing their's, then you have probably completely misunderstood the situation.
